Quant ratings from analyst website, Seeking Alpha, “warned” that the stock is “high risk of performing badly”, contending that the stock is historically associated with poor future stock performance.
“Jumia has inferior profitability and decelerating momentum when compared to other Consumer Discretionary stocks, to the point that it gets a Very Bearish rating from our Quant rating system. Stocks rated Very Bearish by our Quant rating system have massively underperformed the S&P 500, as this article will describe,” Quant stated.
